Is this a recap, a wrap-up, a where am I now? | Hi again…It’s been a while and it is nice to be back.

Greetings readers!

Hiya, how is it going? What have you been up to? It has been like two weeks since I have been on here and I feel like I have missed soooooo much. (Trust me I have a lot of blog hopping to do and it will happen soon). Right now I guess I would wrap up what I got done before I headed into exam season and what has happened since then. Obviously skipping over my exam shenanigans.

SO WHAT REALLY HAS HAPPENED?

I honestly don’t know. It’s all kind of like a blur to me…..thank goodness for Goodreads and social media that keeps me on track. XD

This is going to be a combination of of November and December until today and I will be highlighting a Holiday TBR that is most definitely far too ambitious but I am going to try anyways!

Other Going-Ons

I MEAN BESIDES STUDYING……………..HAVE I REALLY BEEN UP TO ANYTHING??

THE FAN ART BRAIN HAS BEEN TINGLING!

There are things coming people. I mean…I haven’t started anything yet, but I have lots of ideas and I cannot wait to start!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE LION KING TEASER TRAILER HAPPENED

I mean….if they do an exact replica of the original movie only with a different type of animation, I am not exactly complaining….!

I WATCHED THE ANNE OF GREEN GABLES 1985 SULLIVAN ADAPTATION (AGAIN)

It’s just so, so great! I feel like watching it again!

TBR

It’s ambitious. It’s not gonna get done. It’s totally over the top. But A girl can dream!

The Grisha Trilogy & The Language of Thorns
I was actually planning a giant Leigh Bardugo reread in preparation of King of Scars (but I do not think I will be getting to SoC and CK before January)

Kingdom of Ash by Sarah J. Maas
Unfortunately. I am tired of having to be so cautious of spoilers and I might as well get it over with. I am trying to keep an open mind while reading, but I make no promises.

The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Phillipe

Circle of Shadows by Evelyn Skye

The Sisters of Winter Wood by Rena Rossner

Archenemies by Marissa Meyer

Truthwitch & Windwitch by Susan Dennard
If I read these, my sister will read An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir!!! She is sitting beside me right now judging me, but I am putting it in writing to cement this promise.

I am lucky if I even finish that monstrous Maas novel in the next two weeks. But a girl can try!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I will do a Holiday Wrap-Up at the beginning of January to let you know about my progress! The new year has so many amazing books coming and I was lucky enough to get my hands on some ARCs that just make 2019 even more exciting!!!!!

Let me know what you have been up to! I promise to visit your blogs as soon as I can!

Happy reading!
